Wear Sensor Recommendation?

Planning on swapping the OEM pads to Cool Carbons, but I wanted to make sure I got some good wear sensors. I've had a lot of problems with the OEM ones squealing both under braking and just while rolling sometimes, which apparently is a know issue with the sensors. Can anyone recommend a brand or a part number? Or are the current OEM ones better? I'm also hoping the reduced dust will help with the premature sensor wear.

Thanks!

Brake pad wear sensor does not contact the brake rotor in anyway with new pads and shouldn't cause any noise issues. Even when the sensor contacts the rotor when the brake pads are at their minimum thickness, it shouldn't be noisy.

Your noise may be caused by something else.

OE brake pad sensors are your best bet and Cool Carbon Pads are a great choice.
